From the Boss to Neil Young to Pearl Jam, there comes a time in every rock legend’s career when a free concert is in order. Sometimes it’s tied to a political protest, other times it’s to stick to ticketmaster or in some cases it’s just a way to say thank you to all the fans. For music icon Ashlee Simpson, who charged just four dollars for tickets to her concert in Denver it’s all three reasons combined.
Well actually, Ticketmaster is responsible for charging 4 bucks in a last ditch effort to sell tickets, and Ashlee doesn’t really stand for much politically unless you consider cool hair a cause. So by default, her free Denver concert, with another living legend, Ashley Parker Angel, was just a way to thank the legions of devote fans. And there are many, like this fan who raved about the concert on ONTD: “it was only four dollars and I had nothing better to do.” Sounds like a moving performance. I have a hunch she’ll be doing more free shows in the future. In fact if she loses Angel and partners with a life-size Build-a-Bear she could probably throw another free gig at Six Flags.

Tonight marks the series finale of Commander in Chief– a show that, apparently, did not end two months ago like I had assumed. Who knew?
Beyond that, there’s still a lot to watch tonight. While there are new episodes of So You Think You Can Dance, Blue Collar TV, Criss Angel: Mindfreak, and the hilarious Dog Bites Man, but I think tonight’s best bet has to be Celebrity Poker Showdown: New Orleans. Putting Fred Savage, Jennifer Tilly, Brett Butler, and Cool Runnings’ Doug E. Doug in a room together sounds like a can’t miss show to me. But what are YOU watching tonight? Vote now!

Making it on Broadway is every actor’s dream. But it doesn’t matter if you’re an A-list actor, Broadway reserves its esteemed stages for only the best performers in the biz. And Haylie Duff is no exception. After wowing the critics with her star turn in the Certs flavor crystals commercials, the other white Duff has been asked to play Amber van Tussle in Hairspray the Musical. She will be following in the footsteps of a long line of skilled masters of the Broadway stage, namely Drew Lachey, Christina Applegate, Jason Biggs and of course, the great Joey Fatone. Brava Duffster, and if bring your sister to next year’s awards, we’re sure you’ll snag a Tony too .
